Making the effort to not stay in your jimmies all day, is not only great for your self-esteem but it’s also a great way to continue your routine and still have some normalcy.
1. BEAUTIFUL BLOUSE
A top might be so obvious but with so many styles to choose from, getting the right balance between comfort and elegance, especially if you’re working from home is important. From really casual tees to formal button-up shirts, the options are vast. One great choice is a blouse in a happy colour that is sure to lift your lockdown spirits. As you’ll be at home, picking a comfortable but still complimenting top is key. This coral silk wrap blouse is figure-flattering but loose enough for multiple activities.

2. DRESSY TROUSERS
Jeans might look great on but there are certainly more comfortable and sophisticated bottom options for looking stylish during lockdown. Options like these high waist cotton trousers are great for giving you a more elegant look with minimal effort and maximum comfort at home. Although leggings might be comfortable under oversized shirts, other great polished bottom options include plisse pants, wide leg trousers and chinos.
3. REGAL ROBES
A great robe is a home essential and with the amount of time you’re sure to be spending at there on lockdown, you might as well pick a robe that is comfortable, great quality and pretty. Now, this is not your winter time, sofa snuggling, ice-cream eating type robe, this is your spring-daytime-still-on-my-grind type robe. For effortless elegance, yes even in a robe, avoid hoods, go for solid colours as opposed to prints and remember that a smooth fabric pick is always more luscious than a fuzzy bear style. A great style option is this black modal robe that is elegant, simple and versatile.
4. SOPHISTICATED SLIPPERS
